Furniture Moving isn’t Enough (Workplace)

October 29, 2020 2:45 pm Published by

The message is to work from home if you can. But this comes after a summer of encouraging staff back into newly configured offices.

So perhaps now we should look beyond moving tables and invest in adapting workplace policies that support staff’s mental wellbeing. Here are 4 recommendations on how to do this:

  1. Support staff today

Every employee will feel differently about returning to the office. Actively listen and create open and honest communication now, before they’re expected to return.

  1. Approach them as individuals

One solution will not fit everyone, so take an individual approach. Create routines and structures based on personal need.

  1. Involve staff in decisions about their workplace

This will help them support social distancing measures and adapt to the changes. Your staff will feel valued knowing they’re part of the decision-making process.

  1. Take a flexible approach

There isn’t one solution. Policies might need to change multiple times, so be a role model by being flexible and consistent in your communication.

Returning to the office brings with it additional concerns and stresses. So help your staff feel supported and optimistic about working with you.
